Skype with a Class:
Contact the teachers who are involved in your story. You could set up a virtual meeting with them. Be sure to set a purpose for the meeting ans have a plan.
You could discuss the story. Share
how your class brainstormed and made decisions about what to write.
predictions about what may happen as the story continues
connections you can make with the story and real life or other books/stories you have read
the illustrations you drew and compare how you viewed the setting, characters, etc.
You could learn more about the class, school and location of others in your group. Share:
information about your class/school (# of students, daily schedule, what you are learning)
information about your area (weather, seasons, time differences, geography, animals, nearby landmarks, attractions, etc.)
other original stories written by students in your class
something you have learned this year (Be an expert.)
If you connect with other classes and you would like to post pictures from it,
please feel free to do so on your story page.
Classroom Progressive Story Project:
Each student works on their own to write a beginning of a story. Then the students rotate around the room to other student's desks. They read what was already written and then add on to it. You can continue this as many times as you like and the last person writes the ending. Depending on the age/grade level of the students, you could just have three rotations and do beginning/middle/end or you could have 5-6 different writers for each story. The stories they write could be used for proofreading/editing/revising practice as a class. You could also have students work in partners for this project. If you have access to Google Docs, this would be a great way to integrate that tool
Use the stories that are started by other classes as Story Starters for your class! Assign each of your students to one of the stories listed on the left side of the Wikispace. They can read the beginning of the story and then write their own endings. They can check back periodically to see how the classes add on to the story and compare their ending to the endings written by other classes.
